A couple weeks ago I attended the Close To My Heart Leadershare Event in New Jersey. It was a wonderful weekend of fun, learning, creating and just hanging with friends, old & new. Close To My Heart held a live auction to benefit Operation Smile-a charity that helps children with cleft palettes and other facial deformities receive the surgery needed to make their smile more beautiful. It takes just $240 for one surgery to change a child's life forever. I am happy to announce that our auction raised $1600-enough for 6 surgeries! I am proud to work for such a wonderful company that cares so much about others and gives back to help those in need.
For my auction donation, I created this open frame using the Dotty For You Papers, Paradise Flowers & Baker's Twine, Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge Stella Workshop Stamp Set and the Bling Assortment. Three of the tags have mats for photos, the others are just decorative, but I love how it turned out and plan to make another one to hang in my family room. Hope you enjoy!
